Religion: A Documentary History Project
The project (and scholars who are now or have been in the past associated with it) have prepared a variety of bibliographies and bibliographical essays, published and unpublished, on various aspects of African American religious history.
Currently, the following bibliographical essays are available:
Retelling Carter Woodsons Story: Archival Sources for Afro-American Church History, written by Albert J. Raboteau (Princeton University) and David W. Wills (Amherst College), with Randall K. Burkett (Emory University), Will B. Gravely (Denver University), and the late James Melvin Washington, was originally published in the Journal of American History 77, no. 1 (June 1990): 183199, and subsequently reprinted in Religious Diversity and American Religious History, ed.Walter H. Conser, Jr. and Sumner B. Twiss (Athens: University of Georgia Press, 1997), 5271.
African-American Religious History, 1919–1939: Bibliographic Essay and Resource Guide is a working draft that was prepared by Randall K. Burkett (Emory University) and David W. Wills (Amherst College) in the mid-1980s. Never fully completed and never put into print, it is here published for the first time.
In the course of its work, the project produces many research memoranda, on a wide variety of subjects. From time to time, some of these will be made available at this site.
